Description Michael Dyck 2011-10-01 07:57:34 UTC
It seems to me that function item coercion should be required to raise a type error if there's a mismatch in the number of parameters (expected vs actual),
because the semantics of the new function don't make any sense in such a case.

(Currently, an implementation is merely *allowed* to raise a type error.)

I agree.
Comment 2 Jonathan Robie 2011-10-31 22:19:47 UTC
The Working Group agrees.
Comment 3 Michael Dyck 2011-11-18 05:22:15 UTC
I have made an appropriate change to the editor's draft of the XQuery/XPath spec.
